Battle of The Brains Event

Battle of The Brains Event

PARAM - The Computer Society of MGM; recently organized an event inspired by the theme of our favorite television show "F.R.I.E.N.D.S". 

It was a mixture of 'Entertainment and Technology' .
This event consisted of three rounds testing every participant's general knowledge, listening skills, reading skills and analytical skills. Winning relied upon how quick could participants react to the scenarios we put them in.The rounds were as follows:

Round 1: Beat the clock! (This round had quiz. Containing all the aptitude questions, out of the box thinking questions etc. 2 teams from this round were taken further.)
The complete mass was divided into four teams. Two teams were seated in each room. Battle of the brains begun. A series of questions were given to each team. Whichever team answered the most questions was selected for the next round. One minute time was given for each question.

Round 2: Brain x Body! (The 2 teams that were selected here, were further divided into 4 sub-groups and they were engaged in some kind of activity, along with which they had to answer to our questions. 4 winners were selected from this round.)
In this round we divided four groups of eight students each. We gave them a COSCO ball which had to continuously pass from one person to another without dropping. If any participant dropped it, s/he was eliminated on the spot.
While this was going on we asked them FAST THINKING QUESTIONS which were supposed to be answered within 10 seconds. Whoever answered the maximum questions in each group and did not drop the ball, was taken further in the next round.

Round 3: BAMBOOZLED! (4 winners from the second round played BAMBOOZLED and one final winner was selected.)
We altered the rules of original BAMBOOZLED to make it easier for our participants to understand.
Our BAMBOOZLED was played in a ladder of 6 steps. The first 3 steps were played as a pair. It included two activities:
                    a. Guessing a word by giving three phrases.
                         (This was done once by each partner. Making it a                                two step activity.)
                    b. Dumb Charades
The last three steps of the ladder were played by the pair that won the previous step, but against each other.
The 4th ladder included quiz, which had a twist of "spin the wheel". Spin the wheel was a neutral call for every participant who gave a correct or a wrong answer after dabbing for the question. If the dabber gave the correct answer s/he could pass the wheel to the other participant or keep the chance to themselves. If the dabber gave a wrong answer, s/he had to spin the wheel themselves. The wheel had 40% positive points, 40% activity and 20% negative points bifurcated as follows:
1: (+1)
2: (Activity)
3:(+3)
4: (Activity)
5: (-5)
6: (+6)
7: (Activity)
8: (+8)
9:  (Activity)
10: (-10)
The 5th ladder included, a set of 10 questions based on a video that was played on the spot.
And finally, the 6th ladder was the CIPHER TEST.
